Conferences and Book Signings

Well this week was busy. Tuesday I went to the amazing J.R. Johansson’s book release of INSOMNIA. She read a section, and I’ll just say that I got CHILLS and can’t wait to read the rest! (A signed copy of the book is available to win at this contest). This book cover basically means I’ll never read this book after dark… or by myself… or, well, with the lights out? I guess that doesn’t work either way.


My favorite part was how we went into the details of the cover model and how a.) he is a boy and b.) in order to make him look more boyish they added stubble and an earring (lol) and c.) his lips are still a little too pinkish…

Anyways, today I also got to catch up with a bunch of friends at the WIFYR conference, as well as make a bunch of new friends. So basically this week has been so full of writer friends that I barely know what to do with myself. Oh wait, I do. For those who haven’t heard, I’m launching myself into a book-writing frenzy with the determination to finish this AWESOME NEW BOOK IDEA in only a few weeks. I’m already a pretty good chunk in, so it’s looking good! Anyone want to join me for my #writingparty the next two weeks? Hands??? Please? Anyone??

I also want to give a shout out about our SummerPalooza Contest over on the Writer Therapy blog, which is truly epic. Prizes include books of your choice, amazon gift cards, critiques and much, much more.

So how has your summer been going?

    Tell me what you think of the book. It does have a scary cover!

    Thanks so much for coming to the launch! I’m happy you liked the section I read! It was great to see you. 🙂 I’m totally down for a writing party! However…I probably won’t be online because I’m cutting everything off to focus on writing and be sure to meet my deadline. 🙂

    Oh that sounds like such a fun week! I’m hoping to go to WIFYR next year. I’ve heard so many good things.
